Funding Opportunity for Pilot and Feasibility Projects in Digestive and Liver Diseases:


  • Jan 31, 2021 Letter of Intent Due
  • Feb 04, 2021 Invitation to Submit Full Application
  • Mar 01, 2021 Full Application Due

The MUSC COBRE in Digestive & Liver Diseases (MUSC CDLD) and the MUSC Digestive Diseases Research Core Center (MUSC DDRCC) invite investigators to apply to the Pilot and Feasibility (P/F) Funding Program. The primary objective of the P/F Program is to support junior and new MUSC investigators who are interested in pursuing basic, clinical or translational research of diseases that affect the liver and/or gastrointestinal system. Applications that develop or strengthen collaborative interactions amongst the MUSC digestive disease research community are highly encouraged. Proposed projects must have a high likelihood for progression to extramural funding and directly utilize one or more of the CDLD and/or DDRCC Core Resources. It is anticipated that the P/F Program will fund up to four grants. Projects can request up to $50,000 in direct costs for a 12-month period. P/F awardees may be invited to apply for a second year of funding through a competitive renewal.

Questions regarding this RFA can be directed to Caroline Westwater, Stephen Duncan, or Don Rockey.
